The Least of These - Who is My Neighbour?

The Least of These - Who is My Neighbour? Luke 10:25-46 William shared a couple of weeks back that the two things that are of highest importance to the church right now is what are we doing about the youth and what are we doing about the poor. I want to talk about the latter today. What are we doing about the poor? Let me ask you; what are you doing about the poor? This is one of those questions that make us uncomfortable because it challenges us in a place where we simply don’t like being challenged. Most of us are quite happy being challenged on personal holiness or trusting in God; but being challenged on the issue of poverty that is a different kettle of fish. This is because most of us

Christian: You Are the Light of the World

CHRISTIAN: YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD The most important question that you will ever be asked is this: “Who is Jesus to you?” All other questions can have significant outcomes – who will you marry? Where will you work? When will you retire? But there is only one question that will determine where you spend eternity; and all other questions really slink into the shadows when set against this Great Question, “Who is Jesus to you?” This stands out profoundly in our text for tonight, so I will ask you to turn with me to Luke 2. I read these verses last week, but I feel it would be good to cover Simeon’s sayings this week, because they have a powerful message for us. Let’s read together from

Knowing God 6. LETTING GOD BE GOD

Knowing God 6. LETTING GOD BE GOD 1 Chronicles 29: 10 - 13 Today I want us to look at God's Sovereignty - 1 Chron. 29: 11 "Everything in the heavens and earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as being in control of everything." Sovereignty simply means that God is in control. He's in control of everything because He created everything. He created nature. He sustains nature. When He wants to overrule it and do a miracle, He overrules it. It's His prerogative. God is in control of history. Everything is moving toward a climax. God is in control of our lives. God's sovereignty decided when and where you were going to be born. God decided already how long you are going

Seeing God by Seeking God

1. INTRODUCTION In Discipleland this morning we taught the kids about prayer, based on the verse from Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” I was especially challenged by that last phrase, ‘…with all your heart.” I challenged the children with what I believe tonight’s text challenges us. There is a way that we can live our Christian life – dully, religiously, legalistically, ritualistically; and that’s how we do often live it. But the Christian life that God has called us to is vital, dynamic; it affects our eternity, sure, but it also has the chance of changing our day-to-day activities. What a wonderful experience it is when we give our every m

Knowing God 5. THE AMAZING GRACE OF GOD

Knowing God 5. THE AMAZING GRACE OF GOD Psalm 86: 15 We are pros at performance and we know very little about grace. Our work ethic says, "You get what you pay for. You get what you deserve." That makes it very hard to relate to the fact that God is a gracious God. "You, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God." What does grace mean? God gives me what I need, not what I deserve. It is God's nature to bless undeserving people. He loves to do it. Isaiah 30:16 "The Lord longs to be gracious to you." It's His pleasure. This morning I want us to look at 3 ways that God's grace makes a difference in your life. There are many amazing blessings we could look at but for the benefit of time

Remember We Speak the Truth of God

Remember we Speak the Truth of God! 2 Peter 1:12-21 I love the buzz that is created when people do something that is exciting. You know when you have just come off a terrifying ride at Gold Reef City and as everyone gets off that ride there is a buzz of people sharing their experiences. We love to share significant stories. In fact that still remains some of my best times is when we are away as a family on holiday and everyone shares stories of their childhood and I get to see a glimpse into my parents life. Now stories are great however something changes when we are gripped by absolute truth. When something happens and there is a need to make sure everyone know about it. Peter finds himsel

Fear!

FEAR! I’m going to start out this morning with a question: How many here like to watch scary movies? I’m sure there are a number of you. When I was a teen I used to like scary movies. I liked to watch them because they didn’t really do anything to me. At least…not immediately. So for a little while I was into scary movies, and for 10 years since then I’ve been traumatised by what I saw. I must have been 9 when I caught one or two scenes from Sixth Sense, and even up until 2 or 3 years ago I couldn’t walk past a table or a bed without looking underneath it in case someone tried to grab me. The last horror movie I watched was the Eye when I was 18. I was coerced by a friend to watch it, and th
